Are you passionate about growing a unique brand? Does variety and collaboration excite you? Do your designs surprise and delight people? If so, get in on this. Amazon’s start up business, Treasure Truck, seeks a talented Senior Brand Designer to lead our creative team, evolve our unique brand, and scale our design processes to deliver amazing offers and experiential events.

Treasure Truck is a delightful way to interact with Amazon that combines pop-up physical retail and experiential events with online mobile shopping and marketing. On select days of the week, we offer either a single, exciting, and highly curated product at an amazing price or a fantastic experiential brand event. We notify customers of what is on that day via text message, adding an element of surprise to their day, and we curate detail pages that explain why we love it and why they should too. Customers can find out more about our events or purchase our offers online and pick up them up, same-day, at one of our convenient locations around the city. Upon arrival, customers are always treated to a fun and festive experience.

As a Senior Brand Designer, you will own the Treasure Truck brand vision for the UK across all design areas (visual, copywriting, UX), and will partner with global creative and business stakeholders to drive continuous design process improvements. You will manage a small creative team consisting of a Visual Designer and a Copywriter and will oversee third party creative agencies to deliver the brand experience across digital and physical formats. As a team, you will design unique creative campaigns that drive excitement for and bring playfulness to each experience.

As the ideal candidate, you’re known for your ability to create engaging graphics that translate across print and digital mediums—with strong typography, illustration, and motion skills to match. You’re able to work within brand guidelines to strategize, build, and present design work that customers want to take a screenshot of, or pose with. You’re also able to create and evolve brand guidelines in collaboration with international design teams, and are able to inspire and motivate other creative and team members to deliver the brand experience.


You are naturally inquisitive and work at the intersection of customer needs and business goals, blending both into winning campaigns that build the Treasure Truck brand. You’re a self-starter with strong organizational skills, acute attention to detail, and thrive in an atmosphere of rapid development. Collaboration is in your DNA, but you aren’t afraid prioritize, make decisions, and communicate with authority. And we really like that about you.
